{ten months}

so, yes...you haven't heard from me in awhile...I'm going to go ahead and blame my new loves :: my iphone and instagram, for that one...seems I haven't taken a picture on my actual camera in quite some time...

but, the true reality is that the last few months have been a busy blur...and, in them, most importantly, my little guy turned 7, 8, 9, and now 10 months old!  wow!

oh, my not-so-little hudson, you are growing up!  by leaps and bounds, you are becoming such a little guy...so not a baby baby any more!

in the last four months, so much has changed in your little life//

I wrote this portion for an eight-month post, that was somehow never finished:

you are mobile now, and have the army crawl down to perfection!  Believe me, you are FAST!!

books, you like books...not to read, necessarily, but you love to look at and hold them chatting happily to yourself all the while  {grin}
you love to EAT
food food food....you scream for food  {we are so working on that}
back to what you are eating...
baby oatmeal, bananas, green beans, peas, squash, sweet potatoes, PUFFS (your sister loves to share this snack with you ),sliced turkey, you even tried potato soup the other day!

your two bottom teeth are completely grown in, and we're working on a third...your left front tooth!

and guess what you did for the first time yesterday?????  you waved at me...purposefully....the most darling, little wave I have ever seen.....I forget how special and fun these firsts are!  you have not stopped waving since...you wave while I am changing you...you wave while i am feeding you....you wave your chubby little hand behind my back while I am holding you.....love love love 

interesting that while your big sister waved with both hands interchangeably...you solely wave with your right..hmm...

you follow me everywhere, and pull at my jeans until I pick you up....you do so like to hang out on my hip whilst I am doing everything...cooking, dishes, cleaning, 

you and your sister are such good friends....you are a much happier fellow if she is just playing next to you.....not with you, just next to you

she loves to tickle you, and I love the laugh that you give when she does

you like going outdoors, we haven't been out as much now that the weather has gotten so cool

So, let's see, what else has changed since then...

You still love food...ha....and we are still working on asking for more nicely, like a gentleman.
You still love books, and you enjoy actually reading them now, and turning the pages for me {smile}
You have the most perfect, textbook, little crawl, and you are still way FAST!!!
You are pulling yourself up on anything and everything, whether it's balanced or unbalanced...
You are walking around moving from furniture to furniture.

You had your first sleigh ride and
your first time seeing big horsies up close...you were more fascinated by the little goats, though.

You love things that are soft...just like your sister...

You actually say real words now, like "Da-da" "all-da"...translated to mean "all done", and the word "hi"
You duck your little head in a shy hello whenever anybody greets you...your eyelashes blink, and a little smirk finds it's place on your little face.  love it.

You make the same scrunched up face that your sister did so well at your age.  so funny.  ellie enjoys making it so you can copy her.  too cute.
You are in a size 5 diaper now, and 12-18 month clothes.  Such a big boy you are!  Broad and handsome like your Daddy.

You are getting to be more particular about who is holding you.
You smile so big, and come racing over whenever we are talking on the phone to Daddy.
You have four, beautiful, big teeth now, and the most lovely eyelashes.  {I can say this, of course, only because you are still somewhat of a baby, but your daddy better not catch me saying such things...he will disapprove most terribly...something about it not being manly enough or some such assumption...}

You celebrated your first Christmas this past month. so special.

You have now made my walk-in pantry your temporary bedroom.
You will try anything I feed you, and have a new favorite snack:  Baby Mum-Mums
You have had your very first haircut.

You have been very sick lately...with RSV and pneumonia...makes your mommy so sad to see you so uncomfortable...
You have had your first round of antibiotics.
You have had two ER visits...one from the accident a few months ago, and now one just the other night because you were having such a hard time breathing.
You've been scaring your mommy.

I am certain that there is much that I am forgetting to put down....like how you drink from a straw like such a little man, and how you pop your bottle in and out of your lips when you are drinking your milk, and smirk merrily in my direction...like you are treasuring the fact that you still have three-quarters of a bottle left to enjoy.

{every morning I wake up so excited to see your little chubby face, and squeeze you close...you've even started to give me proper, good morning kisses [love] }

You are ornery.
You are sociable.
You are adorable.
You make your mama so very happy.

I love you, my Hudson!

Aw, Hudson, you are adorable. Can't believe your mommy got all those pictures without your sister in them!

Your grandma and grandpa are missing you!

@ Mom...yes, I certainly had to go digging for single shots :) we miss you too...

@ Mary...thank you! and, you heard correctly, Abbie and James were here in Montana for a few days...unfortunately, my children were both very, very sick and we only got a quick visit in right before they had to leave. Not what we were planning at all :: guess they will just have to have a redo visit! Hugs to you, my friend!! :)
